...much like the ON No Data Event for reports....

What you do if there is no data in a report is up to you as the developer.  There is no fixed outcome.

In a form, you can test the size of the recordset and certainly pop up a msgbox as you have indicated.

In the form load event procedure..

if me.recordsetclone.recordcount = 0 then
msgbox "There is no current data to display in this form"
else
' do nothing
end if
